Together we can save more trees. Join TreePAC.

SELF- EVIDENT TRUTH: The Urban Forest is essential.

Trees save money through their green infrastructure services. They reduce stormwater run off, mudslides, urban flooding, soil erosion, and reduce energy costs by moderating the local climate.

Trees are good for the environment: they increase bio-diversity, protect habitat, pollinators, and wildlife. They provide for a cleaner Puget Sound, and they mitigate the causes and effects of global climate change.

Trees improve community and health—they create walkable/bike-able streets, stewardship and recreational opportunities; reduce noise pollution; improve property values and community pride. Trees provide beauty and solace for all.

MISSION STATEMENT:  The TreePAC mission is to influence the government to protect, maintain and increase the urban forest.

We contribute to candidates, lobby policymakers, and raise awareness of Urban Forestry issues. We do so by attending meetings and hearings, sending emails, holding protests and media events, and by adopting tree preservation projects. Always we will fight for better laws, funding, and enforcement.


In order to succeed–and we will succeed–we need everybody who cares about trees to join. To support TreePAC please join by sending your check for $25 or more to:
